We Are All Alone pokes fun at the Chinese entertainment industry

Qin Lan as agent Mo Xiangwan and Guo Xiaoting as Lin Xiang, a popular actress with non-existent acting skills and the temperament of a spoilt brat.

We Are All Alone has just the right amount of humour and honesty without getting too serious, and it’s hilarious how some of the following is obviously throwing shade at the occurrences that are pretty commonplace in showbiz:

XDRAMAsX’s 2018 Drama Review

I didn’t actually watch Secret of the Three Kingdoms, but Wan Qian‘s Fu Shou is so pretty I just had to include her in my post.
